will agree with this, which is that, and i think it was ben smith who wrote a piece that made this point. it's almost like romney has become a bad bank. remember when the banks were failing they were going to create a bad bank to put the toxic assets. you have a party that wants to turn away and knows it needs to reinvent itself. so the easiest thing in the world, the easiest way to make that pivot is to the throw all the toxicity around the brand and heap it on mitt romney who they never liked anyway. throw all the bad assets and all the criticism on top of him and used him to kind of push off against towards some other kind of future. i think that's another dynamic that's driving this. >> i agree with that. he's sort of like the lehman brothers of politics, but that's disingenuous because the republicans have a lot more deep thinking to do than just shoving it all onto mitt romney. >> how about the numbers? >> how about the numbers? you can't make a party a success if it salutes the top 1% and trashes the bottom half, the 47%. these numbers are on the table. let's take a look. i
